Helping journalists investigate health challenges and solutions in their communities with fact-based, rigorous reporting that serves as a catalyst for change.
The Center for Health Journalism has trained more than 1,200 reporters through in-person Fellowships, which include news partnerships, intensive training programs, mentoring and financial support. Working with the Center, Fellows produce major investigative and explanatory projects that have won journalism honors and changed laws and policies across the country. Its “engaged journalism” initiative helps journalists reinvent their reporting process to be more equitable and inclusive, allowing community voices to help shape the narrative. Its online community’s content at CenterforHealthJournalism.org reaches an influential audience that includes journalists, policymakers, clinicians and legislators.
